Mike Sonko's victory challenged in court

A Nairobi resident has moved to court to challenge governor Mike Sonko's win in the August, 8 poll.

The man, identified as Japhet Muroko filed a petition in court challenging the Nairobi Governor's victory on grounds that the poll was not conducted in a fair and credible manner.

According to the complainant, the election was a shamble since there was massive non-compliance withe Election laws and the Constitution.

Muroko claimed that former governor Evans Kidero's agents were barred from accessing most polling stations.

Muroko added that some agents were allowed to access specific polling stations only after voting had taken place, something that contributed to irregularities.

Muroko's petition comes barely days after several politicians moved to court to challenge poll results.

In Nairobi, former nominated Senator Elizabeth Ongoro moved to court to challenge TJ Kajwang's victory in the August 8 poll.

Others who moved to court over the same include Embakasi MP Candidate Francis Mureithi and Starehe's Steve Mbogo.
